Why Westway?

Our recent move to our new state-of-the-art distribution centre HQ, Westway in Renfrew.
Our recent move to our new state-of-the-art distribution centre HQ, Westway in Renfrew.

The move to Westway was crucial in helping us realise our 10-year vision. Efficiency is at the heart of increasing our margin aspirations. Westway is a state-of-the-art distribution centre with efficiency at the core of its design, created by the teams working in all the operational departments. We have three picking environments that cater to the range of products we sell based on their rate of sale.

Our capacity in Hillington was circa 900k cases per month; our new facility has the optimum capacity of 2 million cases per month.

Sustainability is also a key element; we have 400 sq/m of solar panels on the roof, utilise natural light, and have a genuine focus on getting to net zero. We have recently committed to purchasing 2 x 18 tonne fully electric vehicles as part of that commitment.

The 120,400 sq ft depot at Westway Park in Renfrew, is right next to Glasgow Airport, and it will allow us to increase capacity as well as open more stores in Scotland and the North of England, from Wick in the far north to Doncaster in South Yorkshire.

We are an award-winning wholesaler with ambitious growth plans and our new distribution centre puts us in an ideal position to achieve our ambitions, expand the KeyStore estate, and work in partnership with our customers and suppliers for mutual benefit. We are delighted to now be fully operational as a business from what is one of the most modern and efficient food and drink distribution depots in the UK.

We will use our new HQ to drive unrivalled operational efficiency and promote the keenest prices as we aspire to become the most frictionless wholesaler in Scotland for our customers and suppliers to do business with.
